Water connection.

I have looked around, and cannot see one, so maybe there is not one, but..... '72 23ft Safari: Is there a place to hook up water.. or does the beastie just run on the tank?

If it does just run on the tank, is there a way to add a water connection so it will run from the camp line?

Water connection.

Greetings Theo!

Beginning in the 1960s, Airstream adopted something of a "One-Stop-Service-Center" approach to their design. When you are at the rear of your coach, you will likely find that you have a hinged hatch between the body and the edge of the bumper. It is in this area that you will find the city water connection as well as the various dump valve(s), and the electrical cord as well. I suspect that you will find the city water inlet mounted on the streetside bumper support bracket (facing the street with a threaded plastic cap inserted to keep road dirt out). I know this is the case with the positioning of the untilities on both my '64 Overlander and '78 Minuet.

Good luck with your investigation.

Kevin

Found the water in.. thanks..

next question..

Are all the strange looking red handled valves under the cabinet and floor area standard, or did someone go crazy and make an oil refinery under there..

If they are standard, is there anything to tell what they are, without twiddling the things to see what happens?

Theo

They are factory....

If its like my trailer, there are three valves up front under the sink area.

Two are for draining the hot and cold water lines when you go to winterize. The lower third one is for draining the fresh water tank.

There are two in the back closet in the bathroom for draining the hot and cold water lines again, for winterizing.

And the last one is behind the toilet. You have to remove the lid to the cabinet that is behind the toilet. This is the shut off valve to the toilet water supply.

Outside, there is a valve just to the left of the city water hookup. Again, just for draining and flushing the water lines.
